    If it is original it should be a Carter WO. Take some up close pictures and post them.

    There are numbers on the Carb that specifically identify it. Clean it up and look for the numbers to be exact. I would say however, take some pictures and lets be sure it is an original WO. If it is the above kit will do the trick.

    Hey, don't apologize. We all have LBS (Lazy Butt Syndrome). But, by your asking, there is a note to everyone who looks that a '49 CJ 3 should have a Carter WO and the next guy won't have to ask.

    Send us a picture of the lil' critter ...

    Exactly right. People asking questions like this one is how I found out my Solex carburetor isn’t original equipment along with many other things.
